Bali Deputy-Governor Scold Airport Management for Uncompleted VIP Terminal
The Deputy-governor of Bali has joined the growing local chorus highly critical of the management of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport by calling on the senior management of PT Angkasa Pura to repair and upgrade the VIP waiting rooms.
As reported by NusaBali, Deputy-governor Ketut Sudikerta scolded the general manager of PT Angkasa Pura Herry Sikado and the chief of the Airport Authority Bintang Hidayat at a meeting attended by the Transportation Directorate of Bali I Ketut Artika on Thursday, November 6, 2014.
Sudikerta demanded that the facilities for VVIP visitors to Bali be completed, bemoaning that that the original deadline of 2013 has long since come and gone for the promised completion of the VIP and VVIP waiting rooms at the airport.
While putting the finishing touches on these areas, Sudikerta suggested to the airport management that they coordinate with the Provincial Administration, obtaining their input on the interior design and furniture elements.
Sudikerta also expressed his dissatisfaction with the current entrance and exit for the VIP terminal at the airport, asking for a new entrance to prevent traffic jams when a VIP movement is underway. He cautioned the Airport’s management that permission to use the VIP terminal must always be obtained in advance from the provincial government who are finally in charge of the facility.
Responding to the stern words from the Deputy-governor, Herry Sikado and Bintang Hidayat assured Sudikerta that the contractor was now undertaking the VIP terminal’s completion. They agreed that a separate entrance to the VIP II terminal was needed in order to separate special guests from regular users of Bali’s airport.
